We were able to go visit the girls at the BLM holding facility and honestly I have yet to find the words to describe it. Perhaps there are no words. To see the magnetic, magical energy flow seamlessly between the two of them and the feel it pour out into the space all around them. It was so powerful, yet so … ethereal.
They were definitely fearful of us, as most wild horses would be. We watched from the rail as they ran back and forth in their small paddock, seeking a spot that would be the farthest they could get from our peering eyes. I just watched in awe as they ran, and stopped and looked and ran again. What a ride they have in store. Little do they know we are about to load up and drive all the way across the country.
I was very fortunate that a fellow Mustang friend, Krissy Matterson, took me out on the range of the actual South Steens mountain where these girls were recently trapped. (I took video – it is amazing!)
The stillness there was otherworldly. It was obvious how a wild horse would easily be able to detect the slightest shift in energy in such a vast, still place. To think of them taking that same highly sensitive, highly attuned energy and to have to somehow tolerate a drive in a metal box all the way across the country seems so wrong. But I realize it is the only way and it will be worth it. All difficult things prove to be worth it in one way or another.
I take comfort in the knowing that they will find peace again, at our Be Life Farm, after this long journey and that they will find peace in one another along the way.
